July 17, 2015 – Louisville, Ky – Galen College of Nursing is proud to announce that it has been named to the 2014 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement. This year marks the fifth year Galen has been named to the Honor Roll.
The annual Honor Roll award is administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service, recognizing colleges and universities for their impact on issues ranging from poverty and homelessness to environmental justice and school readiness. On campuses across the country thousands of students joined faculty to develop programs and projects to meet local needs using skills learned in their classrooms.
In 2014, Galen students, faculty and staff engaged in numerous charity and service related activities, including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk, the Hosparus Lunar 5K, the Wish Tree Foundation Program and Dare to Care.
“Being named to the honor roll demonstrates Galen’s continued commitment to the communities we serve,” said CEO, Mark Vogt. “We are thrilled to be honored, but more importantly, thrilled to be part of a team that gives back and cares. We look forward to continuing in this tradition of service throughout the year.”
The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll highlights the role colleges and universities play in solving community problems and placing more students on a lifelong path of civic engagement by recognizing institutions that achieve meaningful, measurable outcomes in their communities.
